Subject: Please Hold For The Next Availible Operator.
Interesting promo film telling telephone users of the new direct dialling system. You don't have to go through the operator anymore! Lots of lovely shots of people happily dialling away. Interesting that if you dialled a wrong number, you can just can get the name and number of the person you just called, call the operator, and they'll credit you! I hardly think such a tactic exists in todays world.
